How about this explanation? It made the community the most influential part of the party.  Joe wasn't shit until SC and being endorsed by the right black Congressman. Then the whole party had to support Joe, even though he was 4th on 5th on everyone else's list.

To what end?

Because the older black folks trusted him and got behind him, we had to shift. 

To what?

Yeah, if they just would vote for Republicans, everything would be magically delicious. Just ask the group dying at 3 times the rate of white people during this pandemic. 

Typical response. I didn’t say anything about voting Republican.

How about making the party or any party earn your vote instead just blindly giving it way with nothing to show? You and usual suspects are quick to tell blacks how their access to education, healthcare, wages, justice are always under attack. So they absolutely must vote Democratic. And here we 50 years later playing that same broken record.

Apparently I’m not supposed not supposed to have the same standards for my politicians as you have for yours.

Last I saw, we're a two party system. I guess black people could throw their support behind the Green Party. So if you don't feel one side is earning your vote, you go towards the other side which makes no effort to earn your vote either. 


And always love when you throw out the you and usual suspects are quick to tell black people X. Because I have such a long history of doing that.

Right now, one party feels entitled to the black vote and the other party knows they can’t get it, so neither one is trying at all to persuade the AA community.  How is that beneficial to the black community?  Even if you think the GOP is beyond hope, at least make the Democrats earn your vote.

One party has a ton of AA representatives, lobbyists, and organizers engaged at every level to advance policies that benefit their community.

The other has completely locked up support from white nationalists.

But yeah, it’s clearly a tossup.

For all the people condescending to Charlemagne (which shows you how much use white liberals have for black people who don't toe the line), at least he's asking for something.

"I want something concrete for my community" is far more intelligent and admirable than 99% of what passes for commentary, analysis, and punditry in this media environment.

The white, 77-year-old Democratic (presumptive) nominee just said that if a black person doesn't automatically want to support him that the person in question "ain't" black. He said it out loud, unprompted.

No, no. He’ll proudly proclaim to never vote for Trump, while spending every waking hour shitting on the one person that can keep him from getting re-elected. Again, worst fucking teammate ever.

You’re the local representation of assholes making this way harder than it should be. I’m inclined to believe you don’t limit your bullshit to just this site, either. Hell, you were even suggesting our votes don’t even matter just a few pages ago. What kind of asshole still does that? Particularly NOW of all times?

I posted the percentage weight of your vote in November. If you take that to mean your vote doesn't matter, that's your interpretation.

My posting here will result in a net vote change of 0 in November.

Lines have been drawn. Folks have already decided which side they are on.  The majority of the game is to use various forms of messaging/advertisement/propaganda to either motivate your side to turn out or motivate the other side to stay home.

i'm not condoning his posting patterns or content.  i think my record on this is well documented.

i'm explaining that it should come to the surprise of no one that he's not going to vote for biden.  when people tell you who they are, you should listen.

SC is already lost to reactionary conservatism and Joe will not pack the court or reform it to change that.

Sucks.

(If someone wants to vote, they should vote for Biden because that's the best, very longshot, chance to positively impact the SC, but the game is lost there.)

that has to be it.

Or and I know this is hard for a Democrat to understand. But you could start developing and electing candidates that will actually address the issues you claim to care about. Instead the same candidates will hold onto their seats for years while nothing changes. All with approval of the party head, cause they need those votes every two to four years.

One party has a ton of AA representatives, lobbyists, and organizers engaged at every level to advance policies that benefit their community.

The other has completely locked up support from white nationalists.

But yeah, it’s clearly a tossup.



So where are the results for all the tons of AA reps, lobbyists, and organizers in these communities? Where is the educational improvement, where is the justice reform, where is the housing, most important where are jobs? A bunch of hired hands keeping the sheep in line with empty promises and fear is nothing to be proud of. Unless that’s the master plan, all along.

Democrats have no moral high ground. They’re just nicer racists.

They have some moral high ground. More than Republicans acknowledge, but far less than they think they do.

A huge, huge problem Democrats have is that they lack a material analysis of our system and, because of this, they distinguish themselves from Republicans largely with identity politics and cultural superiority.

The material analysis is there for the Democrats to grab if they want to, but they don't want it. They want to be economic Republicans with black and gay friends.

Pure, utter bullshit.

One party is moving forward towards liberal policies. I will grant you that it’s WAY too slow. That said, the alternative is clearly moving backwards.

Incremental progress creates opportunities for more progress, particularly as society begins to embrace it as the new norm.

The other side is littered with people trying to make this a White country. Do you really want them making new norms? I sure as fuck don’t.

You aren't completely wrong. Every time one party or the other tries to make educational improvements or better housing for all, the haves with power fuck it all up. They don't want to pay for anything or relinquish any of what they have for the "sheep". Look at how DeVos tried to divert money to private schools recently. 

 

This is the shit that is fucking the middle class over. This is jeopardizing our republic. And you are right, there are complicit democrats that the 1% own, no doubt. There is corruption and avarice all over our system and getting rid of republicans isn't going to end it, it will just be a good start. 

What I know is I want to stand with hard working people who do everything right for their family and community even though their salaries haven't grown and the cost of housing and everything else has. Of all the people dealing with this lot in life, you know who I really admire most? Black women who always get shit on but still fucking manage no matter how much gets piled on them. That is whose side I want to be on... the survivor's side. Not the soft fuckers who know nothing but easy because they game the system or buy their advantages. I don't know all the reasons that AA ladies stand where they do but luckily, it aligns with my beliefs and I trust their judgment.  I'm not gonna bet against them. even though the playing field is not level and the game is rigged. Some people have too much grit to let that hold them down.

Warren? A good candidate, for sure. Exponentially better than Shitty Joe. Too good for this garbage party.

But where was this noble desire to stand beside black women when you were supporting a candidate with virtually no black support?

It seems like, if simply going with the lead of black voters was a motivator for someone, they would've chosen one of the two candidates with significant black support. Why didn't that happen? Why are there so many people here who supported all-white candidate bases suddenly becoming champions of the black voter?

It was a dumb question, not worth responding to. Anyone who cares to can check out a near infinite number of articles and sites discussing their progress, or call and ask representatives of the CBC, etc, if he truly believes they’ve accomplished nothing. He doesn’t care.
